Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC – Radice Paltrinieri
Forget everything you associate this word with. This wine might just open your mind to a new world of what Lambrusco can and should be.
Their Lambrusco di Sorbara, like any Lambrusco, is not a wine to be aged, it’s ready to be drunk now, young and fresh.
The Radice Paltrinieri Lambruscos undergo their second fermentation on the bottle, which explains its richness.
This is one of 3 styles we carry at Rimessa. Radice is dry, salmon pink, with a very fine and persistent bubbles.
It smells of raspberry and grapefruit, with fresh bright acidity.
The Paltrinieri Lambruscos ferment all their sugars, creating dry wines without any residual sugars. Historically, Lambrusco is used to be a bit more sweet, partially because the acidity was lower. Sorbara, instead, has a naturally high acidity, creating beautiful dry, acidic, high quality and sophisticated Lambruscos.
"Wine without a story is just a fruit juice with alcohol" .... so below you'll find a video of the winemaker.
Don't forgot to turn on English subtitles.
